The Secretary-General of the Medical Syndicate, Sami Al-Abdallat, said that the committee supervising the elections opened the ballot boxes in the morning at its headquarters in Amman. Branches in the governorates of “Irbid, Zarqa, Madaba, Karak, Ma’an, Aqaba, Salt, Mafraq, and Ajloun” are to elect a new president, vice president, and members for the council for the years from 2022 to 2025.

Abdallat added that 14,339 out of 41,000 doctors of the General Assembly have paid their financial obligations and are eligible to vote.

The head of the election’s supervising committee, Momen Al-Hadidi, said all preparations were conducted, adding that “the elections will be held in 10 centers in Amman, Irbid, Zarqa, Madaba, Karak, Maan, Aqaba, Salt, Mafraq, and Ajloun.”

To monitor the elections, all the elections’ center branches will be linked to the main center in Amman, according to Hadidi, adding that this will prevent vote repetition.

He added that screens in the centers will show the number of voters in each ballot box.

He confirmed that the elections are set to end at eight p.m. in accordance with the association’s law, article 25, paragraph (e).
